Clenbuterol (Clen) is the common term used that refers to the popular bronchodilator Clenbuterol Hydrochloride. Designed with the intent of treating chronic asthma, Clen is also a powerful fat-burner with some similarities to Ephedrine yet far more powerfully effective. While designed to treat respiratory issues it is this medications fat-burning abilities that have intrigued so many and by and large without question it is the number one reason many buy Clenbuterol (Clen) in the first place. The reason is simple; Clenbuterol (Clen) greatly increases your total metabolic activity by stimulating the Beta-2 receptors; once this process is in play the results are very simple, we now use stored body-fat for energy to a higher degree. While direct fat-burning is the primary mode of action regarding its metabolic activity properties Clen has been shown to also greatly reduce total appetite in some; for some it wont but decreasing appetite can be useful to those struggling to lose weight.
How Clenbuterol (Clen) Works:
The process is rather simple; the Beta-2 receptors are stimulated to increase metabolic activity. This increase leads to an increase in your core temperature due to an increase in cellular heat. This cellular increase is brought about by the mitochondria of the cells as they are what heats up thereby affecting the total body temperature. This increase in temperature increases metabolic rate, so you have a full circle effect apt towards promoting the use of stored body-fat for energy.
The Benefits of Clenbuterol (Clen):
Obviously it goes without saying; if you supplement with Clen youre going to burn more body-fat but as it was designed to treat asthma as you may already suspect it can also improve greatly cardiovascular efficiency. Even so, fat-loss remains its primary force of action but Clenbuterol (Clen) also unsuspectingly to many carries with it anabolic properties. Although the anabolic nature of this drug is very mild it has been shown to have the ability to slightly increase fat-free mass. As you understand the more fat-free mass we hold the greater our metabolism functions; again, this only promotes the fat-burning abilities of Clenbuterol (Clen).
The Downside of Clenbuterol (Clen):
clenbuterol,steroids,clen Like all things in life that sound too good to be true, well, in this case the benefits are true but they are not perfect. Clenbuterol Hydrochloride is not without side-effects and they can be quite annoying to say the least. Clen has a great stimulating effect making the individual very jittery and often falling prey to insomnia. How severe these conditions will be will vary greatly from one person to the next and for most will be their worst the first few days of use but some level of a jittery effect will exist in most all that use it. Some individuals may also experience muscle cramps while supplementing with Clenbuterol (Clen) but generally if the individual simply takes in a little extra water each day he will be fine; in-fact, you can almost guarantee it.
While cramps and jitters are annoying they are not seriously problematic but Clen carries with it other side-effects as well, most notably possible cardiac hypertrophy. While this is a concern it is one that is very dose dependent and those who supplement responsibly will not find such a concern to be a reality. Responsible use will not only revolve around dose but duration of use as well; Clenbuterol (Clen) should never be used in a year round fashion and generally speaking 4 months of total use per year is about as far as we want to take it in order to remain safe and healthy.
There are many ways to plan a Clenbuterol cycle with three being the far most common with two being the most effective; yes, of these two there is one that is truly best. For a Clenbuterol cycle the options will generally be, 2 days on/2 days off, 2 weeks on/2 weeks off and continuous use with incrementing dosing throughout. We will discuss all three methods and in the end you can choose which is best for you but understand, regardless of what you decide there can only be one king; meaning only one method is truly 100% efficient.
Bursting Clenbuterol Cycle:
The 2 day on/2 day off method we may aptly call a bursting Clenbuterol cycle as that is exactly what the individual is doing by way of this method. The idea is simple; blast for 2 days with a relatively high dose and follow with nothing for 2 days and then repeat. Such use is often used for extended periods of time, even months and of the three methods we find this to be by far the most ineffective and strenuous to the body. Such a method causes a lot of undue stress and a lot of up and down activity within the body. Further, this method does not make full use of the fat-burning potential of this Beta-2 stimulator. By and large of the various forms this particular Clenbuterol cycle while it will provide results is our least favorite.
The Most Common Clenbuterol Cycle:
For years the 2 week on/2 week off Clenbuterol cycle has been the most popular among performance enhancers largely thanks to internet message boards. This is a very effective means of supplementing with this medication for fat-burning, far more so than the bursting method discussed above. Generally speaking this type of Clenbuterol cycle is very simple and begins with a low dose normally in the 20mcg-40mcg range. The individual will increase the dose every day or two until he reaches the maximum desired dose that normally falls in the 100mcg-140mcg range and then discontinue use at the 2 week mark. At this point 2 more weeks will follow with no Clenbuterol in the system and at the end of this break use will begin again, normally at the ending dose of the last run; for example, if the first 2 weeks ended with 100mcg the next course of use will begin at 100mcg. Normally the individual will hold at this dose and continue with the 2 week on/2 week off method starting with the maximum desired dose each 2 week on period after the initial 2 week period.
Incrementing Clenbuterol Cycle:
While not as popular as the 2 week on/2 week off method the incrementing Clenbuterol cycle has been fast gaining popularity over recent years and for good reason; it makes the most sense and is by far the most efficient as well as effective. The plan is very simple; starting at a low dose, generally in the 20mcg-40mcg range the individual will increase the dose 20mcg every 2-3 weeks as needed. This method allows for Clenbuterol to be used for the full extent of the diet thereby keeping the metabolism revved up through the course of the total duration.
The Common Concern:
The reason many opt for the 2 week on/2 week off Clenbuterol cycle is simple; the body adapts to the medication and by taking a break from use you are able to maintain a positive metabolic output each and every time use begins. However, this method has a problem, for when use is discontinued the metabolism slows down due to the absence of the fat-burner that heats up your body temperature; without its presence the body temperature drops due to the mitochondria now producing less heat and the metabolism slows down. Through the incremental Clenbuterol cycle this is not a problem because the medication remains in the system through the duration of the dieting phase; but what about your bodys adaptation? By slowly and steadily incrementing the dose upwards every 2-3 weeks you do not allow your body to become accustomed; it is true, the jittery feeling often associated with this bronchodilator may be less but jittery or not has nothing to do with the medication working.
